Yes, apparently Leonard Hofstadter comes from great stock. The character, played by Johnny Galecki, already has a mother played by Emmy-winning actress Christine Baranski. And now he's getting two-time Emmy winner Judd Hirsch as his dad! So who was Dr. Beverly Hofstadter formerly married to?
Judd Hirsch will be playing a scientist in an upcoming episode of the show before The Big Bang Theory brings its latest run to a close. Johnny Galecki recently revealed at the PaleyFest panel that he met Judd Hirsch during the Must See TV: An All-Star Tribute to James Burrows special that aired last month.
